ALERT: Christian Girl From Muslim Family Runs For Her Life in U.S.A.

Rifqa Bary is the 17-year-old daughter of Muslim immigrants from Sri Lanka that reside in Ohio.

Perhaps this sort of situation has always existed in civilization to some extent. In the past two centuries, so much has happened so quickly that probably few have given much thought to the fact that the debate of origins was given a very peculiar treatment not too long ago.
